Introduction

The dns-logger provides a light-weight vendor-agnostic method for organizations to capture detailed DNS query and response activity. It captures both UDP and TCP based DNS messages forwarding them in real-time to one of several configured targets. Messages are formatted using either JSON or Syslog, allowing easy integration with SIEM or Syslog infrastructures. The dns-logger does not rely on third party drivers and does not require users to enable DNS server logging which in many cases affects server performance.
